I'm very excited to see what it's like when fully released. It is amazing what film makers have access to these days. Keep in mind that the people are what make a film good or bad. Not a camera. A Komodo will not make a better film than a 5D MK2. It is just one of many tools to help tell a story.
I'm all for higher resolution and larger sensors. One problem is in film and television you always need more money than you have. I would debate that the allocated funds going to an 8k workflow unless required, could be better spent elsewhere in the production. Resolution is a great tool, but I feel using it as a marketing strategy is a mistake. If people are only watching your film because it's in 2k-4k-8k+ you are in trouble.
This is awesome! Thanks for the article. I needed this. Most exciting news I have heard all year.
